Marie Luise Werneburg

Soprano Marie Luise Werneburg grew up in a Dresden parsonage full of art, music and literature.

Already during her church music and voice studies in Dresden and Bremen, she specialized in the music of the 17th and 18th centuries, which is an expression of her passion and a home for her voice. Her musical center and constant challenge are the works of Heinrich Schütz and Johann Sebastian Bach.

Marie Luise performs worldwide as a soloist, working with the Bachstiftung St. Gallen/Ruedi Lutz, Nederlandse Bachvereniging/Shunske Sato, Bach Collegium Japan/Masaaki Suzuki, Stuttgarter Kammerchor/Frieder Bernius, Musica fiata/Roland Wilson, Continuu-m/Elina Albach and Weser Renaissance/Manfred Cordes.

Her growing discography also includes her own song projects; in 2021, for example, she realized the recording of songs by the Dresden composer Johann Gottlieb Naumann for cpo together with the Hammer pianist Sebastian Knebel.

Marie Luise lives with her husband and three children in Berlin, where she teaches at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music. She loves the designs of William Morris and the novels of Haruki Murakami, and reads poetry and fairy tales in various contexts.
